Understanding Hookah Tobacco And Hookah Smoking
With hookah smoking, the joy is in the shisha aromas and flavor and the relaxation the experience brings. This experience is about enjoyment and pleasure rather than addiction when you need to smoke.
When you go to purchase shisha tobacco you’ll notice it sell in packages that are measured in grams with the smallest generally being 50 grams and the largest being 250 grams. You can expect to get 20 to 30 bowls of hookah tobacco from the 250 grams, and that will provide a 30 to 60 minute hookah smoking session.
To prepare the hookah pipe for smoking, you take the hookah tobacco, break it up, and then spread it over the bowl.
Fill the bowl right to the rim but don’t go past it. Then cover the bowl with and get ready to enjoy.
The shelf life of shisha tobacco is approx. 2 years so check the manufacturing date before you buy. If you open a package only to find the leaves are too dry, mix it up well then place it in an airtight container, add some honey, molasses, or glycerin and mix it up again. This will enhance the flavor and restore the moisture so that the tobacco has the correct moisture again.
There are many different flavors including but not limited to almond, banana, blueberry, butterscotch, cinnamon, cola, and green apple. If you’d prefer a little of many flavors rather than a lot of a single flavor why not consider something like a hookah tobacco shot pack where you get a small quantity of many different flavors, usually 10. It’s a great way to be able to mix it up, or find your favorite flavors.
By the way, you can also create your own shisha flavor by mixing two or more flavors together. Just heat the tobacco and it will mix. If you want to enhance your hookah experience, you can add ice to the water to drop the temperature of the smoke more.
While the flavored hookah tobacco is what made hookah smoking popular, once one has enjoyed the experience they keep coming back for that social experience. This classy, modern, yet traditional way of smoking is a great way to socialize and relax with friends.
